About Twence

Founded date: 2001


Company stage: Other

Twence produces raw materials and energy from waste flows and biomass. We contribute to reducing CO2 emissions, reintroducing raw materials to the cycle and reducing the use of fossil fuels. We extract raw materials from waste supplied by customers in the Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom. Twence has seventeen shareholders and we are firmly rooted in the Twente region. With a turnover of EUR 100 million and more than 220 employees, Twence is a significant employer and economic motor in the region. We feel very strongly about sustainable business practices and we contribute to social projects concerning the development of the natural environment, environmental education and culture. Twence is by far the largest renewable energy generator in the province of Overijssel. Nationally we are also one of the largest generators of renewable energy. We improve our processes continually in order to make increasingly more waste materials suitable for recycling and we generate as much energy as possible from the residue. The synergy between our plants and the possibility of supplying steam and heat as well as electricity means that our energy efficiency is extremely high. Our ultimate goal is a zero waste society, with optimal reuse of goods and recovery of raw materials. Ultimately, energy has to come exclusively from renewable resources. Yet as long as any waste remains that cannot be reused or recycled, we will use that for the efficient production of energy. More information:
